Aerotech Ensemble LAB touch-screen control platform

Tuesday, 10 December, 2013 | Supplied by: Lastek Pty Ltd

A touch-screen control platform for easy automation of laboratory and light industrial motion control systems has been introduced by Aerotech. The Ensemble LAB controls up to four axes of brush, stepper or brushless AC motors.

It is designed for university research and manufacturing applications where ease of use is desired. The full-colour, touch-screen display enables quick access to all the core functionality while providing deep contrast and high readability. The intuitive tabbed interface provides single-press access to all set-up and operation screens. A front-panel USB port allows connection of a keyboard and other peripherals to assist in creating complex program sequences.

Applications include: academic research; semiconductor manufacturing; electronics manufacturing (LEDs); test and inspection; laser processing; metals inspection; micromachining; nanotechnology; medical devices. The product includes full compatibility with both EPICS and TANGO distributed control protocols, allowing it to seamlessly integrate into applications at all major research institutions.

The company’s MPS series stages support the platform’s FlashConfig feature. The stage is automatically identified and all operational parameters including axis calibration data are uploaded into the platform. This ensures safe, accurate plug-and-play operation. FlashConfig provides flexibility for laboratory environments where systems are often reconfigured to meet changing application requirements.

The product can run up to four programs simultaneously for easy partitioning of complex operations. The platform controls a variety of applications including point-to-point motion, linear and circular interpolation, single- and multiaxis error correction, direct commutation of linear and rotary brushless servomotors, and servo autotuning.
